What is The Emergency Room?
The ER, emergency room, or emergency department, is where people go when they need emergency assistance. That seems general, but ERs can handle anything from sprained ankles to heart attacks and strokes.
What is a Trauma Center?
Trauma centers are part of the ER. Trauma centers handle the extreme cases where there is an issue of immediate survival. The word “trauma” best describes what brings people to these centers as they are equipped to handle life-threatening and critical injuries.
